I believe active directory is just an LDAP server; how different it is
from regular LDAP, I don't know. But assuming it's similar, then you
should be able to use Apache's mod_auth_ldap to handle authentication.

Something like this in a Limit statement would probably do the trick:

AuthLDAPEnabled on
AuthLDAPURL ldap://,dc=com?uid?sub?(objectclass=person)
AuthLDAPBindDN cn=ldapuser,dc=domain,dc=com
AuthLDAPBindPassword s3cret
AuthType Basic
AuthName "MyPrivateArea"
AuthLDAPAuthoritative on
require valid-user

(where is the IP address of the AD server, cn=ldapuser is a DN
that you can authenticate to the server with, and so on. I've never used
AD, so I have no idea what the format of these DNs will be. You'll
likely have to change the query options like uid and the objectclass).
